What does BariMelts® Iron + Vitamin C do for the body?
Patients who have undergone weight-loss surgery are more likely to develop an iron deficiency because they produce less gastric acid (stomach acid), which reduces the body’s ability to absorb iron from food. A major role of iron is in blood in which it helps to carry and move oxygen throughout the entire body. According to The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) guidelines, iron deficiency post-weight loss surgery can occur in up to 60% of patients. Iron is necessary to get oxygen to our muscles and keep them healthy.
How much elemental iron is in one BariMelts Iron + Vit-C tablet?

What is 325 mg ferrous sulfate equivalent to in terms of elemental iron?
325 mg of ferrous sulfate = 65 mg of elemental iron. We recommend that you ask your healthcare professional before use as you may need to take 1 to 3 tablets per day depending on your personal situation.
Why is BariMelts® Iron + Vitamin C better than other brands?
The BariMelts® delivery system is great for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery as it dissolves in the mouth and makes the vitamins available for absorption before they reach the stomach. Since the vitamins dissolve in the mouth, the tablet does not take up space in the stomach and allows you to eat a true meal. Some patients post-surgery may have difficulty swallowing and therefore this dosage form would help with that as well.
